Not Quite Fit for a Prince

1997 Prince Poniatowski, Clos de l’Avenir, Vouvray
$25 (to the best of my recollection)
Shane’s Notes

The palate up front is slightly honeyed and the texture is very rich. The mid palate shows melon with tangerine and a hint of orange on the finish. The finish is tangy and short. The level of sweetness is not indicated on the label but this has to be a demi sec. Normally, I love sweet wines but I think Vouvray tastes better dry. This is a very tasty wine but it is not quite magical.
